Statement by the Association of Religious Experts
The position of the pro-Russian metropolitan of Georgia on the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Church

As it became known (WWW.WENEW.GE) on January 7, 2021, in gross violation of the law, in the Russian-occupied Tskhinvali (Holy Trinity Cathedral), which is under the canonical jurisdiction of the Georgian Orthodox Church, a service was conducted by Vladikavkaz. The Russian Church has been shamelessly digging into the canonical territory of the Georgian Apostolic Church many times, which we consider inadmissible. We call on the Georgian Patriarchate and the Metropolitan of Nikozi and Tskhinvali, Isaia (Chanturia) to respond immediately to the incident and send a public, protest note to the Russian Patriarch.We appeal to the leaders of the Orthodox Churches to assess the anti-canonical actions of the Russian Church towards the Georgian Apostolic Church.
